What is Lorem Ipsum? Lorem Ipsum is simply dummy text of the printing and typesetting industry. Lorem Ipsum has been the industry's standard dummy text ever since the 1500s, when an unknown printer took a galley of type and scrambled it to make a type specimen book. It has survived not only five centuries, but also the leap into electronic typesetting, remaining essentially unchanged. It was popularised in the 1960s with the release of Letraset sheets containing Lorem Ipsum passages, and more recently with desktop publishing software like Aldus PageMaker including versions of Lorem Ipsum.

Working for the liberation of all beings everywhere. Bringing higher consciousness to the planet, one eternal moment at a time.

Drawing Books

Draw Good Now, E.J. Gold

This is the book that started it all. The images in this book comprise a teaching tool created by internationally renowned artist E.J. Gold from which many different exercises and drills utilizing these images were given to class members.

A good book to start with

Awesome Graphite Landscapes, E.J. Gold

Difficult and easy Dutch-master style landscapes drawn in graphite by E.J. Gold with his commentary and instruction on how you, too, can draw beautiful and awesome graphite landscapes.

Might be a good second book.

Charcoal Nudes, E.J. Gold

Charcoal is a much different drawing media than graphic. However, graphic and charcoal compliment each other nicely.

When you have some confidence in graphic, give charcoal a whirl.

Mysteries of Still Life, E.J. Gold

This book is applicable to drwing, painting, and even sculpting.

Good for deeper study.

Miro's Dream, E.J. Gold & Iven Lourie

An excellent bit of extra-curricular activity :)

Pure Gesture, Art of E.J. Gold, text by Linda Corriveau, Photoart by Nona Hatay
